Leadership is my passion.
Our world needs great leadership like never before. Leaders who lead in the right way, who inspire, engage and enable others, who build a better tomorrow everywhere - in organisations but also in the family, schools, communities, voluntary endeavours, government and society.
Never has the need been greater.
Over the past twenty years I have been privileged to work with thousands of leaders, doing all I can to unlock their potential and to inspire and equip them to do so with others.
I ran leadership programmes based on my 2014 book ‘Lead Like Mary’, run a programme for young leaders, chair a charity developing tomorrow’s conservation leaders in the UK and Africa, and led a project creating a vibrant rural community
As I enter the autumn of my professional career I have significantly reduced my number of client engagements. My focus going forward is to make what small contribution I can, to inspiring and enabling the next generation of leaders - providing them with the knowledge, skills, desire and tools to share and teach the principles and practices of great leadership to others.
I am developing Lead!, the next phase of my leadership thinking, building on the principles explored in Lead Like Mary, including a new book, a free of charge and widely available resource base of material, a Community where like-minded leaders can interact and share experiences, 1-1 coaching opportunities, programmes and podcasts.
During the Covid-19 lock down, I ran an on-line leadership programme with over 100 participants.
